 Additional Info:
* There is an obvious conflict with the two recorded dates as Patrick couldn't have been
Baptized before he was born.

Pat Worked in Chester, England as a laborer on a farm.  It is estimated that he worked
there between 1901 to 1905.  Patrick listed Chester as his last place of residence on his
passenger ship listing, so he obviously came directly to the U.S. from Chester.

The exact date of when Patrick left NYC is not known, but Billy Welch informs me that
Patrick came to Middletown and moved in with his sister Margaret who was married to
Thomas Welch.  Margaret and Thomas made a room for Patrick in their cellar.  A review of
Patrick's petition for Naturalization indicates that he had been living in New Jersey
since 20 Sep 1909.  This fact was sworn to and signed by William Kane & Thomas Welch
